Deep purple-red. Primary aromas of dark blackberry and plum are highlighted by nuances of heritage roses, espresso and 5 spice. The full-bodied palate overflows with earthy, dark, berry fruit. Chewy fruit tannins and mineral elements add savoury notes to this complex, single-site, estate Shiraz.
* No animal products are used in the production of this wine.
Opaque, as expected. While the structural attributes are a bit obtuse, the fruit compensates across a lavish robe of saturated dark cherry and damson plum notes. Hints of Asian five spice and floral aromas lend to the salubrious equation. The oak is vanilla pod and bourbon spice.
The nose projects aromas of blackberry fruit with vibrant layers of dark fruit flavour, well balanced by the oak with just a hint of citrus peel and tannins building across the palate.
Very deep, dark, dense colour, almost glass-staining, star anise, sundry berries and chocolate, eucalyptus forest floor aromas, earthy, the wine is essency and deeply concentrated, superripe and plush. Sensitive use of oak. Inky wine. Thick and dense and gets away with it.
